I would like to know the answer to this as well. Also, if the Feasibility Study results in the policy change being studied, i.e. dropping the CCTs for "partial collections of literary forms by one agent," as I sincerely hope it will (there is nothing I am more eager to eschew than assigning CCTs for incomplete compilations of literary works) ... is there any chance the change could also be applied to non-literary collections, for instance collections of photographs by one photographer?
